A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The book her devoted readers have been waiting for. At last, New York Times bestselling author Kathleen Norris's first continuous narrative . . . a story of sex, drugs, and poetry.

After spending her sheltered high school years in Hawaii, Kathleen Norris was woefully unprepared for Bennington College in the 1960s, with its culture of drugs, sex, and bohemianism. But it was also at Bennington that she discovered her great love of poetry, which carried her to New York City at a time when a new generation of poets was emerging and shaking up the establishment.

Working at the Academy of American Poets for her beloved mentor, Elizabeth Kray, and hanging out at clubs with Andy Warhol's crowd at night, Norris found herself immersed in an exciting and emotionally turbulent new world. Her memoir of that time-of her friendships and encounters with poets, including Jim Carroll, Denise Levertov, Gerard Malanga, Erica Jong, James Merrill, Stanley Kunitz, and James Wright, as well as of her own development as a poet-is an inspiring tribute to poetry and a stunning evocation of a time and place. Her tenuous

balancing act on the bridge between naïve experimentation and indirection and the more focused responsibilities of adulthood makes for a dramatic and illuminating account of coming-of-age at a tumultuous moment in our history.

About the Author:

Kathleen Norris is the award-winning, bestselling author of Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary of Faith; The Cloister Walk; and Dakota: A Spiritual Geography. Her poems have appeared in The New Yorker, in various anthologies, and in her own three volumes of poetry. She divides her time between South Dakota and Hawaii.
